Carmen Elena's story

Señora Carmen L. is 37 years of age and married to Señor Porfirio Hernández who buy and sells livestock. They have two children who are in school. She has had a grocery store for four years now where she sells staple grocery items. Many customers shop there because of the good service she provides them. Her greatest dream is to have a supermarket offering all kinds of products, where the people visiting it would be able to do all their shopping without having to look anywhere else.
